2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Didn’t expect much, but have been hitting some of these asian swills lately. Bottle opened with a strong skunk smell. Color was pretty light, yellow with a very slight off orange tint. Huge head merley from the artificial carbonation and it subsided just like a soda (some lacing throughout, though). Mouthfeel was decent for a swill and the flavor was corn malty with a mild (pleasant) hop finish that would be typical of a weak Pilsner. Wasn’t a great beer, but I’ve had worse.

1.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Skunky aroma, porued a see-through amber with large, frothy head. Watery flavor, reminded me of a Miller Lite, but aftertaste was better. A sweet taste, should probably be taken with Chinese food to get the full experince. I’d rate higher, but the flavor doesn’t do much alone. Not a bad beer, just not a good one either.

[bottle from peckhams] bland, skunky, cereal bollocks. I’ll avoid this in future.

I was introuduced to Tsingtao during a sushi dining experience. I found the flavor sweet and mild. The appearance is clear golden in color. Overall I place it as a refreshing & complimentary beverage for chinese or japanese cusine if you can’t handle or don’t like Sake.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2006 Nasty. Asahi Super Dry was my lowest rated beer before this, but atleast that was completely bland and inoffensive. This is similarly watery, a bit sweeter. Cloying. Horrendously oily aroma, infact if there were minus marks on the aroma scale for exceptional circumstances, this would be there.

Better than average lager. Taste is a bit malty with some hops presence. Smooth to drink and finished nice and crisp. Better than most beers available at the local Chinese restaurant.

Not as bland as I expected. Actually very refreshing with a decent sweet malty base. Almost no bitterness.

Not one of the best beers in the world, but it is the #1 branded export from China. Typical premium lager with a little more flavor than it’s domestic counterparts.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2015 21 Mar 2006 - Very light sweet and hop aroma. Clear yellow colour, lowish head and lacing. Sweet-sweet and low hop flavour. Hoppy bitter finish. Too damn sweet to balance, to rate it higher.
